Body temperature and its changes due to the state of the patient’s health has already attracted the interest of doctors in ancient Oriental cultures. The difficulty to measure it with objectivity and accuracy, however, has for many centuries blocked the recognition of this parameter as important as many others (i.e. heart rate, lung function etc.).
With the new electronic possibilities in the ‘70s the German engineer, W. Eidam, inspired by the ideas of Professor dentist Rost, built a device capable of measuring the exact temperature of well-defined points of the body surface. In a second stage, the technological revolution made the recording of the values obtained in fractions of seconds on a modern PC possible.
What is it and how is thermography carried out?
This method is a perfect non-invasive method of “screening”. As mentioned before, a measurement of the temperature values of points, well-defined anatomically, is performed.
The circulation device (and thus the temperature) are dependent on nerve reactions. The heat from inside of the body comes to the surface layer according to physiological laws, by vessels and nerves (autonomously), and spreads into the environment. Values, measured on different areas of the skin, can provide important information on regulatory capacities within the body.
The procedure (which lasts a maximum of 5-6 minutes) includes, according to the patient’s problems and the needs of the therapist: the head, dental arches, chest, breasts, spine and pelvis.
After this first measurement, the patient is exposed to a thermal stimulus (for 6-10 minutes). Then comes a second measurement.
The latter reveals the reaction of the vegetative nervous system, influenced by the internal organs, which is expressed as a normal or abnormal change in temperature.
What are the signs?
Thermography is a diagnostic method. It allows us to investigate various pathological situations:
– Outbreaks with side effects (see also “neural therapy – link”)
– Problems of the immune system
– Overload at intestinal level as: allergies/dysbiosis of intestinal flora
– Nervous syndromes
– Chronic fatigue
– Loss of mental concentration
